Gauthier and Associates (G|ALA) is a professional landscape architecture studio based in Vancouver, BC. We specialize in the conceptualization and implementation of carefully considered environments for a broad range of private and public sector clients. Our diverse portfolio includes work ranging from large-scale new community planning to parks and open space design; infrastructure and institutional design; urban design and redevelopment and residential gardens.
At G|ALA our first principle is to listen – to our clients, our collaborators and the community at large to better understand the site and inform our process. Our approach is to seek solutions that benefit not just our clients, but the site and its’ surroundings. Our commitment to a collaborative, iterative design process allows us to achieve these objectives without compromise.
Whether it is supporting a multi-disciplinary project or taking a leading role on projects work with a landscape focus, we are dedicated to finding spatial solutions to problems, often in ways that go beyond our role as landscape architects.
Our dedication to collaboration and detail has led us to work with some of Canada’s, and the world’s, best brands and institutions, including the National Gallery of Canada, The Biennale Di Venezia, Mountain Equipment Co-Op, Reliance Properties, Westbank, The City of Vancouver, The American Consulate, Simon Fraser University, Van Ke properties and many others.
Our practice is comprised of designers from a variety of fields and backgrounds who bring a range of skills and experience to their work. All are devoted to achieving the highest standard of care to every project and are passionate about expressing beauty, liveability and materiality to their work.
